SAS-TEC Back Protector
Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts.
SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades.

Reviews & Questions
The SAS-TEC replacement, which Anthony calls "Level 2, plus," is an enormous, positive upgrade.
However, I have in my possession a Forcefield Sub 4 Back protector. Forcefield claims that this armor provides the worlds best back protection. This claim is pretty close to Anthony's, vis a vis the SAS-Tech back protector.
A comparison is called for, but how would you do it? Crashes at various speeds is the obvious answer. I wonder why no one has gone that route? We also rejected that approach.
What we needed was a scientist to design a rigorous experiment comparing the two. We found a scientist; he said we would need a volunteer, a baseball bat, and a person willing to hit the volunteer in the back with increasing enthusiasm.
There being no one else available, the scientist also served as the volunteer, and his wife agreed to swing the bat, with steadily increasing enthusiasm in each of the two trials.
The volunteer first put the Forcefield Sub 4 back armor over his bare skin.
The bat was a 24" aluminum model like one might find at a Little League.
The hitter began to strike the volunteer, gently at first, but by the third swing, it hurt. He withstood two more, harder swings, before indicating that the trial could be stopped.
He then put on his Cayenne Pro Jacket, with the SAS-TEC back protector. The hitter swung five times and the impact of the bat did not hurt as badly as the third swing at the Forecfield armor. He asked the swinger if she was hitting harder with each swing, as instructed. She said she was, A sixth very hard swing was delivered. The volunteer certainly knew he was hit in the back but the pain was not as bad as the third swing with the the Sub 4.
Hitting the pavement is very different from being hit by a basball bat. The Forcefield armor covors more of the back, and it is attached to your body. In the Cayenne Pro jacket the SAS-TEC could slide or twist away from the impact area and fail to provide much protection at all.
With these caveats noted, within the limited context of this obviously somewhat casual experiment, the SAS-TEC fared better than the Forcefield Sub 4.
I doubt very much if the new back armor Revit has come out with for their jackets matches the SAS-TEC, but that is speculation. A volunteer, a batter, and a baseball bat could provide interesting empirical evidence bearing on that question..
The protector is very malleable once it warms to your body. The fact that it is so flexible makes it the most comfortable protector out there. I have an AlpineStars protector in my other jacket and that one feels like I have a skateboard attached to my back. No flexibility.
I plan to buy the SAS-TEC protector for any other jacket I purchase in the future.
The back protector itself is harder than other pieces of SAS-TEC that I have for shoulders and elbows in my jacket. This is primarily due to it being thicker. I haven't crashed with it and I hope I don't have to.
In my touring suit which has a little more room, I barely notice it installed when riding. It curves to your body well. I have another tighter sports jacket and with this protector in it it is a bit of a squeeze since the protector is a bit thicker than the useless factory foam back pads. Will provide update to review once I ride in warm weather to see how it breathes.
Overall a great product at the incredible price. Highly recommended for that extra protection. Hoping not to actually experience/use the protective qualities of the protector, but its really good to know it is there.
